Home Learning

The events of the last few months have really emphasised the importance of home learning opportunities - and it has also been the catalyst for an explosion in the number and range of resources available online. Below you will find a list of school-wide approaches that we use (along with links to all the relevant sites and portals), while further down the page you will find class-specific information, linked to current topics and learning:

"The behaviour of pupils is good. Pupils conduct themselves well around the school. They ... are keen to learn and impress their teachers."

Ofsted report, 2018

Year 1
  • Our topic this term is Wild and Free, which will see us exploring the local area, talking about our environment and thinking about how it changes in different season. You could build on this at home in lots of ways - try exploring the park, making maps or looking for signs of autumn (and winter when it arrives) on the way to and from school. There are loads of resources available through the Oak National Academy, here.
Year 2
Years 3 and 4
Years 5 and 6
  • In geography this term we are learning about the rainforrests, which provides lots of opportunities for learning beyond the classroom - try investigating the weather, finding out where rainforests can be found on maps and globes or making posters, picture or models of rainforest environments. There's lots of information, video and links to get you started available on the BBC Bitesize webiste, here. 
  • In Eagles and Falcons, we are currently focussing on inventors and scientists. Below is a list of possible tasks that you can complete independently:
  1. Research one of the following inventors/scientists: Nikola Tesla, Michael Faraday, Leonardo Da Vinci or Marie Curie. What did they invent/discover? How did they change the world?
  2. Design your own invention. This could be a machine to tidy your room, a contraption that helps you get dressed, a homework machine etc. 
  3. Draw, label and write a brief overview for your invention. Write an explanation of your invention. Explain what it does, how it works and who might use it.
